Steelers' WR coach Montgomery leaves for job at Duke
By Ed Bouchette
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin will have yet another opening on his coaching staff to fill because assistant Scottie Montgomery is taking a job with Duke University.
Montgomery coached the Steelers' wide receivers the past three seasons. He will become the offensive coordinator at Duke, a source told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Montgomery coached the wide receivers at Duke, his alma mater, for four seasons before joining the Steelers staff in 2010.
He was among Duke's all-time leading receivers.
Tomlin has hired two coaches since the end of the season, Jack Bicknell Jr. as his offensive line coach and Danny Smith to coach the special teams. He still has not filled one other position.
-- I really liked Scottie, too. Oh well, another opening for us.
